§ Mr. Madden
asked the Attorney-General how many people charged with offences at or near Greenham Common over the last year have applied for legal aid; how many such applications have been refused; how many appeals against refusal to grant legal aid have been upheld by the area legal aid committee; and if any direction has been issued advising that legal aid should be withheld from any person charged with offences at or near Greenham Common.
§ The Attorney-General
Information distinguishing applicants for legal aid who were charged with offences arising at or near Greenham Common could only be obtained from the courts and the Law Society at disproportionate cost. No such direction as is suggested has been issued.
